The ZipGrow™ Tower: Thinking Up Instead of Out.
The best vertical hydroponic farming systems in the world start with ZipGrow™ Towers.
Why Farm Vertically?
A simple drip emitter directs hydroponic or aquaponic solution into the top of the Tower. The water then trickles down through the media and back into the reservoir. The design is simple but highly functional and allows for flexible irrigation rates.

What components go into ZipGrow™ Towers?
The Tower is purposely made in white as white reflects light, which is necessary for conserving light (as light, and not as heat).
A titanium dioxide coating keeps the towers clean by oxidizing organic matter in the presence of UV light. This also helps prevent algal growth. The housing itself is PVC, it squeezes the media nice and tight and holds it in place when you move the Tower around.
Matrix Media™ is very durable and made from recycled water bottles, it comes in long strips which are folded and pulled into the housing. A silicon binding on the media keeps it from degrading.
Watch the video below to understand how media is zipped in and out of the tower and how easy it is to plant.
The media holds roots steady, and it’s also lightweight allowing the Towers to be moved around easily.
